Some of you guys might remember my Michigan Stadium quad rotor video from a few months back. I've since fallen off the radar with aerial photography because back in April, the satellite lock on my old quad rotor failed and the wind carried it into the Arb, where I never found it.
But now I'm back! This time with a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+!
I've just completed an announcement video for my new quad rotor which heavily features flying around Ann Arbor:
And of course, you can't have video without some photos to go with it (right click->view image for bigger view):
The Phantom 2 Vision+ features a 3-axis gimbel for the camera to make the video look incredibly stable. I can also live-stream the video feed to my phone mid-flight so I always know what I'm looking at.
I'm open to suggestions for future projects! I'm not going to fly over Michigan Stadium during a game, but some aerial tailgating scenes would probably be fun to film.
I was also a part of the Daily Show's filming segment at the Michigan Daily, but I was not the drone pilot. Here's a picture I nabbed of Jordan Klepper feeding a baby lion on set, though:
